Faith Replaces FearĀ 

Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Romans 8:31 If God is for us who can be against us.

Fear tries to steal us of our peace and hope in God’s loving plans.  Fear is unbelief.  Faith re-centers our minds and hearts on the truth that God is for us.  He will not forsake us.  His love never ends.  His purpose will prevail. His Word is true:  when we are afraid, we trust in God.  Fear cannot be against us because we have faith in our all-powerful, all-loving God!  Faith is belief in action.  Faith steps into the shoes of fear and walks us toward God.  We experience the love of God, by faith in His Word, His Will and His Way!  God replaces our fears with living and active faith!

Trust Replaces Fear

Jesus wants us, simply, to trust Him. When asked by a synagogue leader to heal his sick daughter, Jesus waited, and the father thought she died, but Jesus revealed later she was only asleep.

Mark 5:36 “But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, ‘Do not fear, only believe.'”

Let this be our daily truth. We do not fear, we only believe. We replace our fears, worries, sufferings and disappointments with trust in God. Shout aloud, “I trust you, God,” and see how fears subside, worries shrink back — they tremble at the sight of our almighty, trustworthy, healing God! He is to be trusted above all.
